The perfect escape for families, couples and lovers of the great outdoors. 4 camping pods are located on a traditional working croft in Mangersta, a tiny village on the Uig peninsula, edged by dramatic cliffs and sea stacks. The quiet valley opens out to Mangersta Sands, a completely breath-taking Hebridean beach, frequented by Sea Eagles, Golden Eagles, Gannets and Fulmars. 

The excellent Uig Sands Restaurant is a 7 min. drive and Uig Community Shop (for groceries, fuel, ATM and launderette) 10 min. drive. Uig Museum and several cafes are located in neighbouring villages. Mangurstadh Gallery is on site where guests can access WiFi and view original art, crafts and landscape photography evocative of the Hebrides.

2 Wigwam® Cabins and 2 Shepherd’s Huts with ocean views, are fully self-contained with their own private en-suite showers/WC and kitchens equipped for self-catering. Each Wigwam® sleeps up to 4 adults on 1 double bed and 1 double sofa bed. Each Shepherd’s Hut sleeps up to 2 adults on one double bed.
